When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The procedure takes just a few simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to forward any one of your domain names or subdomains, you can use the handy redirection tool we've incorporated with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It'll allow you to forward the website visitors within seconds, considering that all you will need to do is choose a domain/subdomain and input the Internet address of the other Internet site. The redirection will take effect almost immediately. If you are proficient, you will be able to change different options, such as the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be altered for any existing redirection too, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you wish to change something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
